The hotel has a beautiful classic entrance and lobby area that fits right into the historic neighborhood of Recoleta.
The rooms are on the small side but very comfortable, and the restaurant downstairs is a little dark and dank, but the service is excellent and I wasn't really planning on spending too much time in the room or hotel restaurant since there are so many places to explore in this city.
Te more grandiose (and very expensive) Alvear and Park Hyatt hotels are right down the road, so if you're looking for luxury and want to spend the money on it, you should look into those hotels.
I for one opted for value, comfort and location since I'd rather spend the money on meals and the amazing leather goods sold in the classic little stores that can be found in the area.
Walking distance from Recoleta, museums, stores, numerous outdoor cages and a few very good restaurants, I could have stayed in this area without exploring any other neighborhoods! But make sure you take the time to go to Palermo Soho, and Puerto Madero as well.
My favorite little cafe is right on the corner of the hotel, Las Ramblas. You can get amazing coffee and a cheese plate for two for 60 pesos that will do for a snack or a light lunch.
This is my second time staying in Melia Recoleta and I will definitely be going back.
